At the beginning of 2010, China once again demonstrated its space-based ambitions. On 11 January, China's state-run Xinhua news agency announced that it had successfully tested a "ground-based, midcourse missile interception technology". The test was confirmed by the Pentagon, which detected "two geographically separated missile launch events with an exo-atmospheric collision".

China was quick to state that the test was "defensive in nature and is not targeted at any country". However, coming three years after the successful January 2007 test of an anti-satellite (ASAT) weapon, the January launch was another example that the People's Liberation Army (PLA) is looking to challenge the United States in space.

在2010年开始,中国再一次显示了它在空基领域的抱负。2010年1月11日,中国官方新华社新闻宣布它已经成功地测试“地基、中段导弹拦截技术”。测试被五角大楼确认,发现“二枚不同地理位置导弹发射事件连同地一次外大气层碰撞”。

中国政府迅速称这次测试是“防御性质而且不针对任何的国家”。然而,在2007年1月成功测试一种反卫星(ASAT)武器后经过三年,一月的发射是又一个例子解放军 (PLA) 正在面对在空间领域挑战美国。
